University of Bristol

At the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine we aim to inspire you with our mission to turn science into medicine. As an intercalating student you will join our current third-year undergraduates learning what it is like to be involved in biomedical research and how to think like a scientist. You will develop critical and analytical skills which will benefit you enormously in your future career as a doctor, dentist or vet.

Bristol is a powerhouse of research expertise in the field of cellular and molecular medicine. The UK’s Research Excellence Framework 2014 placed Bristol first for the impact of our research in clinical medicine, which incorporates this discipline. As a result, we can offer outstanding teaching by active researchers who bring the latest developments into the lecture theatre and laboratory.

You will study four lecture units plus a research skills unit which includes training in data handling and a substantial laboratory- or literature-based project. Lab-based research will see you working as part of a world-leading research group either at the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine or in a local hospital. A literature-based project could involve data analysis or a literature review supervised by one of our experts.
